“At its peak, PartyGaming was the world’s largest online gambling company, valued at almost $10 billion at one stage. They were hurt badly by the UIGEA, after their Board of Directors decided it would be prudent to withdraw from the US market (which provided the majority of their customer base) late last year. The company now has a market cap of around $2.5 billion and Garber believes his company could be a viable purchase option for a major Las Vegas land-based casino looking to enter the global online betting market.”
